The Tennessee Titans had TCU WR Jalen Reagor in for a pre-draft visit, among others.
Per NFL Insider, Adam Caplan, the Tennessee Titans were one of a handful of teams to have prospects in for pre-draft visits before the league shut them down in response to COVID-19.
As noted in the tweet below, TCU wide receiver, Jalen Reagor, was one of eight players brought in by the Titans.
A month ago, I projected the Titans would take a look at Reagor in a pre-combine article, and I’m here to remind you why. But first, is Reagor worthy of a top 50 selection in the 2020 NFL Draft?
Media pundits can’t seem to agree, but I feel that Reagor is a top-five wide receiver prospect in this year’s class. So, yes, he belongs in the top-50 conversation, but is he a good fit for the Titans at number 29 overall? That’s probably a stretch with more immediate needs elsewhere.
So let’s make a case for Reagor. Pros and Cons, simple and straightforward.
- Shifty at LOS; Twitch athlete
- Capable of expanding route tree
- Great high-point of the football
- Good vision
- 4.47 forty-yard-dash (more than enough vertical speed) Plays faster on tape.
- Too often utilizes his body to catch the football
- Poor blocker
- Not a big fan of contact — more of a finesse, in space type of player. Won’t win many contested catches.
I’ve compared Reagor to Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill, but I’ve also seen him likened to Las Vegas Raiders WR Nelson Agholor. If I’m GM Jon Robinson, the disparity between the two is far too significant a risk for me at number 29 overall.
However, if Reagor is available in the second round at number 61 overall, that’s a different story.
I doubt the draft will play out like that, as Reagor’s athleticism will likely skyrocket him up draft boards, but if the Titans were afforded a shot on him on day two, they should consider it.
Of course, this would probably mean the end of WR Corey Davis in Tennessee, but it’s not hard to believe that the Titans would pass on picking up Davis’ fifth-year option on May 3rd. Only time will tell.
